Beautiful Venues & Alumni Discounts

Did you know St James School in Earsby Street and Ashford is available to hire for private and corporate parties and events?

The beautiful grade II listed school boasting luscious grounds and a picturesque lake, only 4 minutes’ walk from Ashford station, provides a stunning setting for a family party, team building activities or a relaxing afternoon away from the office playing cricket and enjoying a bbq.  You could even host your own outdoor cinema evening.  

In Earsby Street there are rooms for evening classes, a drama studio perfect for yoga and pilates and the newly refurbished teaching kitchen which is ideal for cookery classes.  The private courtyard would impress anyone when decorated for corporate and private entertaining during the summer and winter months.  

As a member of the St James School Alumni you are entitled to a discount on the site fee (T&Cs apply).    
Event Manager Gillian Richards can provide idea and recommendations for caterers, party planners, marquee providers, and entertainers.  If you would like further details please don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling 01784 266935 or email
